On the first playoff hole at Colonial, Sam Burns drained a 40-foot putt for birdie to win the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge, edging world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler.
Burns said, “Yeah, so we were about 10 yards closer from the fairway, had 140, and we were trying to hit like a 125 gap wedge. Just got hit with a lot of wind and just snuck over the back of the green, but not a bad spot.
“Pretty straightforward putt. A little downhill, breaking left to right the whole way, played it about a foot out and just tried to match the speed up. I honestly thought it was going to be a little bit short when I hit it, and that’s kind of why my reaction was what it was. I thought I left it short.
“Yeah, I mean, to see that go in, that was obviously really cool, and yeah.”
